day 2279 – foot issue

everything seemed fine during training and i even landed my handspring on floor midway through. two hours after the fact, my foot started having shooting pain. i’m beyond puzzled why my foot is in so much pain that i ended up at the emergency. the area below my ankle had a big hard bump that i described as bone-like. i went through the standard protocol and took xrays, left the hospital with the doctor diagnosing it as an achilles tendonitis. i had a chiro and physio take a look and both think it’s much more than that. i could no longer weight bear and had to resort to crutches to get around

day 1541 – recasted

i was anxious to see my referred hand specialist also known as cosmetic plastic surgeon. i saw my bruised and shriveled up hand as he removed my splint to take a new set of xrays. after flipping back and forth a dozen times and examining my bone, he decided he wasn’t satisfied and wanted to reexamine next week. he sent me home recasted with a fiberglass splint only to do it all over again to decide if i require surgery or not. the splint is slightly less bulky, but just as uncomfortable. i pray for it to meld back together quickly so i can get back to doing what i do

day 1283 – february snow

the forecast was correct and vancouver indeed got its february snowfall overnight. we were forewarned about the precipitation, but the city did nothing to prepare for this snowfall. there was no signs of salted roads nor trucks shovelling snow. as a result, the road conditions was much worse than it needed to be and more car accidents than there should have been. my hour drive home from richmond back to vancouver was full of skidding

meeting at coffee shop to actually do some work on building my library project. with two days before the deadline, it’s a must to get down to business and be productive. i regretfully procrastinated again and have tons and left myself with no choice but to work until 2am to get as much as i can done since i won’t have time to do so tomorrow. i don’t know why i always make it so hard on myself, that’s something i must work on

i am very happy mo was able to send me off at the airport today, but saying goodbye was super difficult. it was much harder than the last because instead of leaving for three days, i will be without him for twelve days. it was brief stay in vancouver between calgary and hong kong, but we made every day count. the next twelve days will feel so different without his presence. we are separated by many time zones, but we’ll still do our best to have our video chats. i always look forward to reading his messages and seeing his selfies
